Hello Fellow Crafters and welcome to Quick Tip Tuesday! Today's tip is something I do ALL the time in my effort to save paper (and our planet). When designing my projects, I cut bits from inside the shadow layer. Once the top layers are in place, it's impossible to tell that the shadow has bits cut out of it - although you will have to be careful if you are using a thin, light-coloured paper over a dark shadow. For my project, I used a thick white cardstock over the black shadow and had no problems.

If you have a Quick Tip to share, I'd love to hear from you. Please email your suggestion to me at smallbitsofpaper(@)hotmail(.)com (remove brackets!) and perhaps it will be highlighted here - with credit to you, of course.
